Generational Ministries at The Barn Church

At The Barn we ensure that everyone in the generational ministries experience safe, age-appropriate environments where they learn about Jesus in a creative and relevant way.

Your first visit

Here's what to expect when visiting Generation ministries for the first time:


First, find the area marked for first-time families. There we will meet your family, check your child into our system, and then one of our volunteers will lead your child to their age-appropriate ven


Upon checking in for the first time, we will ask for the following personal information (NOTE: We value your privacy and will not share this information with anyone):


  • Parent/guardian name(s)
  • Child's name
  • Child's birthdate
  • Home address
  • Phone number
  • Any special instructions (allergies, special needs) for your children

How check-in works

Before Service or Friday programs: You can check-in your child at any available check in point. After finding your child’s name in the database, you and your child will be given a name tag and you will be given a matching collect card, these are exclusive to your family and your visit. Your child will need to wear the name tag portion while you hold on to the collect card.


After Service or the end of your Program: After the service or program is finished, you will return to your child’s respective venue and show your collect card in order for your child to be released back to you.


During Service or Program: In the event that we need to contact you during the service or program, your child’s identification code will appear on the screen(Sunday) or a message will be sent to you (Friday). We ask that you exit the auditorium immediately and look for a staff member or volunteer who will direct you to your child, or in the case that you are not on the premises for you to get to the church as soon as possible.


We value your child’s safety and your peace of mind while in our services.

Mothers Room

We have a Parent's Viewing Room that is available at every service for mothers and fathers with infants. This room is reserved exclusively for parents with infants to enjoy the service in a more private and quiet environment.
